At the top of Mill Mountain just minutes from downtown Roanoke sits the Mill Mountain Zoo. This animal sanctuary and educational center has called this location home since the 1980s, and today, it continues to provide visitors and locals with exciting attractions and the chance to see and learn about notable creatures.
Today, the museum is home to a varied collection of species, including snow leopards, cougars, red wolves, red pandas, tufted deer, Black hornbills, and Indian crested porcupines, among many others. Visitors are able to engage safely with the animals and take note of their natural environments and behaviors while receiving interpretive and interactive education from Zoo staff and posted literature.
